Experience the real Japan
We came to Japan to experience the culture outside of Tokyo and what memories we got from Aburaya Tousen. From the time we got picked up at Yudanaka Station till we bid sayonara the next day, we felt so welcome and appreciated. Even the owner came by and spoke to us during dinner and she was so down to earth. She even walked with us to the shuttle as we were leaving. The experience of staying at this Ryokan was priceless. Well maintained facility but it's the people that was the difference. Highly recommended.

High quality Japenese style hotel
It was a wonderful traditional Japenese experience. The dinners were amazing and they were very accomodating to our diarery needs. You get your own dinning space, to which you arrive on time, and dinner takes a long time with many small Japenese dishes, most of which were delicious. The earliest dinner time was 6, so with jetlag my child fell asleep before getting much to eat. The next night, we fed him elsewhere before going to dinner and when he fell asleep at the table, we gently placed him on cushions on the floor, where he continued sleeping while we enjoyed our many course dinner. Service was excellent. Sleeping on the floor was an interesting experience - the mattresses are not very thick. The Snow Monkey Park required serious walking skilles to reach - mostly the first half a mile, which was a steep incline. The weather there is colder. The park is small, but very much worth the climb. There is not much to see on foot from the hotel. Apart from the Snow Monkey Park (and the delicious food at Enza Cafe at the entrance to the path up), the other main sight-seeing is at Shibu Onsen. There are also Japenese style hotels there, and if you are car-less, I would stay there. Aburaya Tosen is great if you are travelling by car, but I would not bring one into the narrow roads of Shibu Onsen.

Lady boss is very hospitable. She followed and sent us off to the train station personally while her lady staff drove the van and helped us to load and unload the luggage. Onsen is clean with good view

Awesome experience
Stayed there for 2 nights with my daughter while visiting the Snow Monkey Park. The onsen hotel was very professionally run, and the staff were friendly and helpful. A staff of the hotel somehow was at the train station to bring us to the hotel when we arrived on an express train, even though it had not been prearranged. We used the public bath on 2 separate days, and was lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves on both occasion. It was very clean, and well maintained. The only complaint was that the temperature of the water was a bit too hot for comfort. The 8 course dinner was scrumptious. The best part was being offered the choice of main course on the 2nd night. All courses were different on the 2 nights, which allowed us the chance to sample many different types of food. The owner even made an appearance during dinner time at our private dinning room to personally welcome us. It was a nice touch. I have no reservation in recommending the hotel.
